Germany: Imam charged with hate crime says he was misunderstood, only wants to kill some Jews

Germans charge Danish imam for anti-Jew threats

An imam from the controversial Grimhøj Mosque in Aarhus faces charges in Germany for leading a prayer in Berlin in which he called for the death of “Zionist Jews”.

German officials have announced that they will press charges against Abu Bilal Ismail, the Danish imam who used an appearance at a Berlin mosque in July to call for the death of Jews.

According to a report from TV2 News, public prosecutors in Berlin will charge Ismail with incitement of hatred (Volksverhetzung).

Speaking at the Al Nusra mosque in Berlin on July 18th, Aba Bilal Ismail was caught on video calling for the death of Jews (see it below).

“Oh Allah, destroy the Zionist Jews. They are no challenge for you. Count them and kill them to the very last one. Don’t spare a single one of them. Oh Lord, bring torment upon them,” Ismail said.

Ismail later attempted to clarify his remarks, telling BT “I don’t mean that all Jews should die.”

“I prayed for God to destroy those Jews who kill us. It’s not all Jews, because I know Jews who are good toward us,” he said.
